I'm a 29 yr old female. I do not dye my hair but for some reason it has been falling out in large amounts I do not have bald spots but my hair is becoming very thin. I have chronic dry scalp I guess you could call it and nothing I have tried has made it any better. I really need suggestions and what type of doctor should I see for this?

Hair Loss in Women
There are many different causes of hair loss, especially in women. While female pattern baldness is one of the leading causes, it is often a symptom of an underlying illness, issue, or lifestyle choice (such as poor diet). I advise you to see a dermatologist.

Female Hair Loss
There are a variety of causes for your hair loss and the associated change in the scalp condition. I strongly suggest you meet with a doctor who has experience treating hair loss, which may be a dermatologist, or a hair restoration specialist.
